Re: Yellow screen

I can only offer a guess as to what is causing this problem. The unit's LCD screen is powered by a flat ribbon cable, which can sometimes be seen from the top of the unit as the screen is sliding out. Try observing the cable as the screen is sliding out. If you can see any cracks in the cable, it needs to be replaced. Unfortunately, you will have to send it in to Pioneer to have that done. This issue is a known problem to Pioneer. If it is indeed the flex cable, they should replace it for free with a 5-7 day wait. The screen having a yellowish tint can be a sign that this cable is about to fail. I wouldnt worry about it now if you can still see your screen fine but if the screen goes out or gets worse, I would try to send it in to Pioneer to see if they will replace that cable for you. The URL of the page that explains this issue is,,2076_310069579_395713842,00.html Good luck with your unit.

I connect my alpine cva 1003 to valor dv-169T dvd player. sounds come out but the screen is not getting connected to dvd player. i connect red, white and yellow wires.

if evrything is ok with the dvd (make sure the dvd is working fine), you need to hook up the yellow/ blue wires and yellow / black wires one for parking breack and the other for the breack chek the diagram on top of the alpine radio .

You need to get an up to date navi disc. There is a procedure to down grade it, so it would read the yellow disc. But it will mess up the unit if you do it wrong. Beside half of the current info won't be on the yellow disc anyway, because it is so out dated. Goodluck.

I have found that copied dvd's don't always work properly and even the slightest blemish or scratch renders it inop also it is illegal to sell a copied disc as it infringes copyright, I understand that the genuine disc's are expensive but you get what you pay for.

Make sure the VGA cable that goes to the brain is fully seated at both the display and the brain box. It's what controls the video signals.
